Owner info

About the owner: The 3 daughters of Duane and Lillian Watts manage the Topside property. Janet Watts (photo above) manages the day to day affairs, including bookings. We all take great pride in running this small business, and we work hard to ensure that this tiny piece of paradise remains a paradise for all of us to enjoy.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Topside is a Boston architect designed house, ideally situated high above the beach with sweeping views from every room of the Sea of Abaco and surrounding islands. Many visitors prefer the quiet North End, with easy access to a community dock and just a short ride by golf cart or bike into town. Most guests say that Topside is maintained at an uncommonly high level.
